Greetings from Casa Vieja Lodge,

Tonight we host the kickoff for the Seventh Annual Stu Apte Fly Fishing Sailfish Tournament. We have six teams competing for the coveted Golden Sailfish Award presented to the top team.

Anglers have traveled from across the country to compete against each other and the the world renowned, IGFA hall of famer Capt. Stu Apte. "I love Casa Vieja Lodge and there's no better place on the planet I would rather fish this tournament," said Stu. Competing this year is the entire Casa Vieja Fleet: Makaira, Rum Line, Intensity, Release, Captain Hook and Spindrift.

Stay tuned and good luck to all our tournament anglers

Herb Rosell
Tournament Director
